Barnes and Noble is holding an event on October 26. What is this about? Many are speculating this might have something to so with the Nook.

It has been ages since we first saw Nook. It was first launched lastOctober 20th and started shipping December of the same year. We actually don’t know if Barnes and Noble is planning to do follow up on this. Then out of nowhere, Barnes and Noble announced that they’ll be holding an event on October 26.

Last Monday, the bookstore announced that the company is updating Nook’s firmware. Will they announce something special during the event? No one can really tell.

"It's a Kindle. A $139. I payed more for this sunglasses." The Kindle 3 TV ad aims to dethrone iPad.

Amazon has thrown on purpose a blow over over Apple, when they released a TV ad that takes on the shortcomings of Apple iPad.

The ad was aired today at Good Morning America. It promotes the new Kindle 3 and its $139 price. Much lower than the iPad. It actually mocks the Apple gadget and the comparison is quite reasonable. Two of the main key points of Amazon is that with iPad it is impossible to read when the sun is up and all bright. And the fact that Kindle costs far less than iPad.
Kindle 3 may not have the color, but with the large market place to shop for apps and the screen is better. All the more it is more responsive, updated via e-ink screen and month’s worth of battery life more affordable that price point.

Amazon throughly believes that the product’s price will convince people to buy the device and make it more popular than iPad. It has done pretty good, considering the fact that Kindle 3 is now the fastest selling Kindle ever.
